Playing music from paper

Paper posters that play music via printed circuits made with conductive ink have been unveiled. The prototype ‘Listening Post’ poster is a guide to bands performing locally. The interactive poster plays a short clip of a band’s music when a thumbnail image is pressed. Tickets can also be booked via the poster.

The poster and postcards are the result of a research partnership with Cambridge firm Novalia (that has developed methods to print conductive ink), art group Found, musician King Creosote and Dr Jon Rogers from the University of Dundee.

Peter Thomas, who is head of the Liverpool-based Uniform agency that helped co-ordinate the poster’s creation says, “It could be a way to get round the modern problem of infobesity”.
